MP3tunes Partners With Logitech Squeezebox Boom


MP3tunes is an online music storage startup company that was started by Michael Robertson. Robertson is also the founder of MP3.com. MP3tunes has recently announced that they are partnering with Logitech International SA (NASDAQ:LOGI).

Logitech Squeezebox Boom’s music player will be able to connect to MP3tunes to listen to MP3 files remotely. The Logitech Squeezebox Boom is a $299.99 30-watt amplified and speaker music player. The player also supports Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius, Last.fm, Radio IO, RadioTime, Live365, and Slacker.

The player connects to these sites through a 802.11g wireless connection.

“When you own music, it should be forever, and you should be able to enjoy it wherever you go, which is why we developed the MP3tunes Music Locker to securely keep music in a cloud,” stated Michael Robertson, CEO of MP3tunes. “With the Squeezebox Boom, a truly snazzy audio device, all it takes is a common Internet connection and your Music Locker can go anywhere you go.”

    I have 3 squeezeboxes in my house, all connected to a crappy Via Linux machine to which I regularly sync the iTunes collections from 3 computers. Two of the squeezeboxes (version 2 and version 3) are connected via Ethernet to their own amplifiers. The third one is a Boom and it's wirelessly connected to the server.

    The setup works flawlessly, and I'm very happy with it. Maybe your problem is related to the WiFi network, I don't know. My wireless Boom works just fine in my house.

    What I love about the SqueezeCenter software is that it allows for many possible configurations. I don't use the iTunes setup, because I want to have the music from 3 different computers available to the server. I setup the SqueezeCenter to rescan the music library at 2am, after the iTunes libraries have been rsync'ed to the Linux box.
